Governance Maturity Matrix – Primary Care Prompt Document

In 2022/23 the South West Faculty for Advanced Practice ran focus groups and webinars with stakeholders in primary care to discuss and develop Primary Care Advanced Practice Governance. The focus groups completed a Governance Maturity Matrix with “prompts” relevant to Primary Care that would help practices in completing the matrix. This document is designed to prompt thought processes rather than provide answers and is useful in prompting and building governance for Advanced Practice to continually improve the environment for trainees and patient care delivery. Should there be further considerations, please do get in touch.

Advanced Practice South West NETS Results

The National Education and Training Survey (NETS) is the only national survey open to all undergraduate and postgraduate students and trainees undertaking a practice placement or training post in healthcare as part of their education and training programme. The survey gathers opinions from students and trainees about their time working and training in practice placements and training posts, asking them to provide feedback on what worked well and what they think could be improved.

This report provides an overview of the responses from Advanced Practice trainees in the South West.

This work was undertaken in response to South West identification that the range of professions accessing Advancing Practice training was limited to a small number. It goes on to explore possible avenues to promote multi-professional access to Advanced Practice.
